Poured from a 16 ounce can dated 12/12/18. Pours a turbid, dark orange with about three fingers of thick white head. Smell is tropical fruit. No specific fruit jumps out at me. Taste is similar to the smell, but sweeter. Very thick, but still nice and smooth. A very nice beer from Pipeworks.

Pours a cloudy straw color with very nice clinging lacing. smell has citrus and melon mixed with topical berries and fruit . Taste very fruit forward ,notes of passion fruit with citrus and white grapes. Mouthfeel very smooth and sweet with very little bitterness. This style is copied (NEIPA) everywhere and on shelf in your packy. This one is one of many that are cloned its good and praise for Pipeworks at keeping the $$ down on the 4PK.

Best ever from pipeworks. Very similar feel to wrench from industrial. Smooth and creamy combined with all the desirable characteristics of a NE IPA. If you drink this at 5 o’clock on a Friday after a tough week, you might consider this one of your top 5 NE IPAs. #buzzworthy

Canned 12/12/18

Looks like yesterday's leftover screwdriver, tired and murky. Or as my wife said, it looks like the water used to rinse a paintbrush while painting a wheat field at sunset.

Anway, this came across as vibrant and juicy to me. Robust citrus and tropical fruit, candy peach rings, and low but appropriate bitterness. Impulse single purchase, shoulda bought the pack dammit.

16 oz can into IPA glass. Dated 12/12/18.
Look is nice cloudy golden yellow. Smell is candied tropical fruit. Taste follows nose but juice factor is a little muted. Feel is medium and creamy. Overall this is a nice NE IPA just a little on the creamy side (oats) and less on crisp juice side.

A - Opaque golden tan color with frothy thick lacing like every other turbid Northeast IPA.

S - Pungent spicy citrus rind with some peppery notes.

T - Spicy fruit rind and ends balanced with some bitter sweetness.

M - Thick body with a velvet feel.

O - This is a great 7% IPA that is definitely worth checking out.
